Less than three days after the death of his elder brother in Doha following a heart attack, an Indian expatriate died of cardiac arrest while he was making arrangements to send the body of the former to his home country Monday.
K T Irshad, (51) who was the chief accountant at Imalco Group, died on Friday and his younger brother K T Risaludheen, (46) passed away in the afternoon Monday.
Risaludheen was employed in the catering division of Qatar Petroleum.
He complained of chest pain while waiting at the cargo section of the Hamad airport for completing the formalities to send his sibling's body to India, sources said.
The deceased, according to some of his close friends, had been working with Qatar Petroleum for about 25 years.
Irshad has left behind his wife Shaharbeen and a daughter while Risaludheen is survived by his wife and four children.
The brothers came from Vadakkekad, near Orumanayoor, in Kerala's Thrissur district.
Irshad's body was flown home Monday while the mortal remains of Risaluddheen are expected to be flown to his native place Tuesday.
